Jack St. James arrives in the town of Superstition looking for answers - and what she finds are more questions. When the older sister of a missing town troublemaker asks for Jack's help, she takes the case. Jack goes looking for answers to that mystery as well as her own, only to discover that every town has its secrets— and the ones that Superstition hides bridge old family history with the edges of a world far outside the one she knows.
